Curious - anyone tried to squeeze their butts into a Onex?
Dennis' sonex is anything but stock... There's a youtube video where the changes are obvious - panels lifted a good 2-3", and he's actually got a modified seatback that sets him farther back.No, but Jeremy said they have fit tested 6ft 9in tall guy in the Onex. Try the Waiex or a Sonex with a lowered seat, should work fine for you at 6ft 3in tall. I ALMOST fit in a standard Sonex the other day (they are all a bit different) but as you pointed out, when the panel comes down like that it really messes things up. This particular standard Sonex I tried did not have the rail of the panel coming down so my legs were ok, but my head still hit the canopy when it closed with me sitting on one side. If I sit in the middle, I fit fine. Pretty sure there is a standard Sonex for sale near me that is set up for one person...He wants 18K? You would most certainly fit.

Does anyone know of flight data from a Sonex/Onex with wing root fillets? I have been told that some RV builders have done WR fillets, but also haven't seen any results data from them.
